Thanh Le, the CEO of Coin98 Finance said:

I think every VCs in the world have their own investment thesis, but from what I’ve seen from all the western funds who are interested in Coin98, here are things that they are all on the same page: Before we started doing a raise, we already built Coin98 Wallet and quickly acquired 200,000+ users in Asia. The product is quite established and captured a decent market shares in Southeast Asia markets. Compare with thousands of blockchain projects who only come up with only an idea, we already ship the product out and being used by hundred thousands people across Asia.

Coin98 Finance has been working on establishing projects including Coin98 Wallet, crypto’s first cross-chain browser and mobile wallet which has significantly seen a good amount of adoption in Asia.

The DeFi ground in Asia has to start from scratch. It can only be strengthened with the help of the local market. Whereas the DeFi bluechips like SushiSwap, Uniswap, Aave, and Compound have just begun to gain traction in the South Korean exchanges. Kakao’s Klaytn and Terra remain the most popular DeFi projects in the region.

Coin98 observed that people are switching to PancakeSwap, an automated market-maker for Binance Smart Chain for trading activity than UniSwap, an AMM for Ethereum. This can be taken into conclusion that the user activity in Asia are opting for blockchain that are cheaper, convenient and easy to use. However, DeFi is quickly gaining traction in Vietnam, South Korea, and Japan along with the added contributions of the experienced teams in optimizing the infrastructure around DeFi.
